This worksheet has 20 examples of simile and metaphor. Students read each example, determine whether it is a simile or metaphor, then explain which two things are being compared. Want to differentiate instruction and make it harder for some students? Ask your high performing pupils to translate each example to literal language as well. Have them explain what the speaker is saying without the poetic devices. With two double-sided sheets, this worksheet is as time-consuming as it is helpful.
